STARS’ workout tips
Want a million-dollar figure? Discover how these celebs keep in tip-top shape
Practising yoga every day allows for mental calmness. — Denise Keller We would give anything to have Denise Keller’s sculpted physique. The model-host is part-lean, part-strong, and all gorgeous.
WORKOUT ROUTINE: This stunner is a regular yoga devotee, saying that because her work schedule can get pretty drawn out at times, she needs the calmness and clarity it provides to keep her health in check.
DIET PLAN: Denise loves going out for meals but follows the 70/30 diet to keep her weight under control. She eats 70 per cent vegetarian and 30 per cent protein in the form of eggs, fish, chicken, and legumes.
Running has become an inseparable part of my life. — Sammi Cheng Pop diva Sammi Cheng has a body most women would die for. So what is the Cantopop queen’s slimfast secret?
WORKOUT ROUTINE: Sammi is an avid sportswoman and regularly goes for runs and jogs in her native Hong Kong, which she also meticulously documents on her social media feeds. She says that by getting into the habit of running in the morning, she feels more energised and well prepared for a hard day of work.
DIET PLAN: A self-confessed food lover, Sammi maintains her long, toned limbs with homemade vegetable soups that she sips throughout the day to curb her hunger pangs.
Pay attention to what your body needs to get the body that you want. — Kate Hudson We’re almost certain Kate Hudson has good genes to thank for her phenomenal figure, but the actress doesn’t rely on DNA alone.
WORKOUT ROUTINE: Kate does Pilates for an hour, three times a week. If you think she gets some rest days in between, think again. She does yoga or goes for a spin class on her off days. The actress says paying attention to what your body needs is the key to figuring out some shortcuts to the body that you want, with minimal time commitment.
DIET PLAN: Kate is very particular about what she puts into her body. She steers clear from processed, fried, and oily foods and sticks to a mostly alkaline-based diet.
Stay active even when you're sitting at an office desk all day. — Miranda Kerr This former Victoria’s Secret model boasts some enviable curves and puts her hot bod down to good old hard work at the gym. WORKOUT ROUTINE: Miranda exercises three to four times a week for up to one and quarter hours each time. She warms up by stretching before targeting her legs, core and arms for a total body workout. She also stays active all day by clenching and tightening different parts of her muscles in the car or on the way to the airport. DIET PLAN: Veggies, veggies and more veggies. If it’s green, then you’ll find Miranda munching down on it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. She's not against the occasional indulgence, such as her grandmother's pavlova, but in daily life she avoids sugar as well as wheat.
